Algebra.. please help

posted by .

Please help. I have been trying to figure this problem out for an hour now.

Solve the following system of equations.

X + 8y = 5 (1)
x=8-8y (2)

  • Algebra.. please help -

    put the second in standard format.

    x+8y=8
    but the first is
    x+8y=5
    so the equations are not independent, they are in fact parallel lines, and have no solution where they cross.

  • Algebra.. please help -

    that is
    x + 8 y = 5
    and
    x + 8 y = 8

    These are two parallel lines which never intersect, no solution possible.
